Oh. My. So I finally found the lipstick to persuade me I can wear glitter lips. I don’t honestly get this excited about a lipstick but Lipstick Queen Black Lace Rabbit is THE lipstick for anyone who’s ever lusted over dark lips trends but were too afraid to give them a run. I think it’s older women, too, that will fall into that category – if you love lipstick and miss the days when you could wear it super sexy with complete confidence, relax. It’s here, and yes, you can!
Before you give me any kind of side-eye, Lipstick Queen Black Lace Rabbit is super-sheer – it’s more of a clear wash of charcoal but what it does is give an instant vampy edge to anything you’re wearing underneath. It’s got a fine smattering of gold twinkle to it, too. I’ve tried this alllll ways and still come back to prefering it over natural lips – it’s edgy without being obvious and obvious without being odd. Seriously, you do not know what a black-washed lip can do to a face in terms of vampy! I’m going to show you on my next Facebook Live video what it looks like on me (it’s HERE) but I absolutely love it.
When Lipstick Queen Black Lace Rabbit launches in a few week’s time, it will come individually (£22) or as a set in either Pinky Nude Sinner (below) or Bright Natural Sinner (above). I find the lighter on the nude shade you can go, the better a result you get so bright natural would be my choice, but you can put it over any colour and do a shade shift. I know this isn’t the first black-wash lip product (I think Kevin Aucoin does one), but it’s the first I’ve seen that has incorporated golden shimmer.
If you’re wearing Lipstick Queen Black Lace Rabbit over bare lips, it does catch any dry flakes so make sure you exfoliate first – it’s definitely worth it.
This swatch is Bright Natural Sinner with Lipstick Queen Black Lace Rabbit in the centre and finally over the lipstick.
And this is Pinky Nude Sinner. In terms of texture, you cannot feel the shimmer shards at all and it’s a very creamy, fairly glossy formula. I tend to find LQ lippies a little bit drying, but Black Lace Rabbit seems to have a balmy enough texture that it’s the exception.
I’ll update for launch date, but this is an every woman lipstick that I think you’re going to love for its ability to transform a natural lip or any existing shades you own – I’m sure it will sell out.
